Card Trick Tumble
Designed and Made by Gayle P. Ropp
As a member of the Jinny Beyer Hilton Head teaching staff, Gayle Ropp of Fairfax, Virginia, made this quilt for a seminar with "fragmenting" as the theme. She chose to work with the traditional Card Trick block, but then she enlarged the block to five times its usual size. Each portion was divided, or fragmented, into smaller patches. The appliqued vine adds a graceful curving line, and a touch more color.
Although the overall design looks complicated, the construction is easy if you follow the directions for each unit, paying attention to the position of lights and darks.
